Here is a link to the story from Politico.com.
I blogged about the changes that CMS was proposing last week. Here is a link to that blog post.
CMS administrator Marilyn Tavenner sent a letter to Congress which acknowledged the concerns of all the stakeholders that argued against the changes to Medicare Part D and announced that CMS would not be moving forward with the proposed changes.
The two primary changes that CMS proposed that they will not be pursuing were the removal of immunosuppressives and antidepressives from protected class status and the requirement for Part D plans to allow pharmacies who agree to terms and conditions to be considered preferred pharmacies.
